    TV just shut off followed by blinking red light. Unplugged TV from power source and then plugged it back in. Green light blinks and turns to blinking red. Lamp light was on but only the first time. Now it is not on. Replaced lamp 1 1/2 years ago but we received a warning on the screen. Original lamp lasted 3 years. This time no warning. Only way to turn off TV is to turn off the power source. Should we change the lamp again?

Sounds like the lamp needs to be replaced.

Before any repair or replacement, unplug the tv from the electricity for an hour, plug it in. This forces a system reset on the tv and may solve the problem. More likely you need a new lamp.

Hi Genaro,

Blue led light lit solid and yellow led light flashes is an initial attempt of the set to re-light the lamp.Red led flashes and yellow led light solid means that the lamp won't light up that's why it only has sound without the picture.
Since you've replaced the lamp twice and still the symptoms persist, I suspected that the fault came from the ballast board and not on the lamp itself. If the ballast board gone to malfunction, there's no high voltage will produce to light up the lamp and will sensed by the processor and trigger the error code (Flashes/solid led light with color code).

To verify whether the ballast board is faulty or not, check if the lamp will lit by looking through the lamp door louvers at the rear of the cabinet upon turning on the set.
Please let me know what you will find to assist you further.

The flashing light opposed to a solid pwer indicator light usually means it needs to be serviced. I wouldn't reccomend home repairs, but repairs sometimes cost more than the product. You should compare prices and such before making your move.

Akai PT5598HDX/SMS won't turn on


Just a thaught, I could be wrong, maybe a problem with the power button on the remote ? It might shut the TV off, and when you do keep pressing the remote button, the red light on the TV will keep flashing like that also. Ive seen this prob on a few other blogs, so seems to be pretty common. I know I like to keep the remote pointed at the TV all the time, maybe try pointing it away for a while, just to see.
